Tulips A-Bloom!

Hi and Happy Wednesday to you all!  By the time you read this I will hopefully be on my way to NYC for our spring break vacay!!  It takes us about 4 hours to get there so I'll use that time to read while hubby drives, lol--maybe a nap too :o)  I'm just so excited to get away and do some fun things and spend quality time with the family.  This past month has been really hard and somewhat of a blur, so I hope to get my mojo refreshed and catch up with everyone!


NewsBitz:

***********************************************
Tulips A Bloom!


Tulips are my favorite flower in the whole wide flower kingdom, hee hee--I love all of the colors!  This beautiful image is NEW from Karen Lockhart called "Spring Flowers" and is from her new spring collection!  I've paired it up with those new fabulous papers from Basic Grey called "Green at Heart".  The pendant cut-out behind the image is a Spellbinders pendant "Kaleidoscope" and the border trim is a MS border punch.  The bow was done with my Bow Easy tool!


I colored the image with Copics, then used Diamond Glaze on the pot and the centers of the daffodils.  The violet flowers got pearls made with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen and stickles on the other flowers!  The entire card got a spritz of Smooch Spritz in Vanilla.  Hope this makes you think of Spring this March day!  See ya next week!

  10. Suzanne,
    This card is just beautiful! It looks like a spring snow globe without the snow just the shiny sparkles of dew! I absolutely love it!
    I hope you have a fantastic well deserved vacation. I will be here still stewing over the brunette hair. Everything else seems to be working well but I keep coming out with flat dull hair. Hopefully when you return I will have one that you can say GREAT JOB on! LOL!
    Have fun and I am really jealous. I have never been to NYC and one of my dreams is to go to a Broadway Show! Be safe, have fun, and will see you when you return!
    Hugs,
    Lisa
